Monday With The Fungus Eater
This lovely gastropod is Indrella ampulla, a unique species of snail that lives in the tropical rainforest in the Western Ghats of India.

There isn't a great deal of information  floating around on this intriguing mollusk, so all that I can tell you is that it feeds on fungus.

Also, like last week's painted snail, this creature exhibits quite a bit of color variation.

So, in lieu of more information, I'll leave you with a few images of these wonderful pulmonates. Please, observe and enjoy their marvelous diversity and exotic beauty.
